Veteran's Day

Offering my respect and gratitude to all those who have put themselves in harm's way for the sake of others.

May the souls of those who have fallen be at peace.
May the grief of those who love them be comforted.

May the wounds of the living -- those of the body and those of the soul -- be healed.
May they receive their just compensation for the service they have given and the hurts they have endured and still endure.

May they be upheld by love.



May peace prevail.

I think you will appreciate how writer Elizabeth Bear speaks of this subject in her LJ, and the song she posts there.

Thanks. One of my other friends also quoted that passage from Vonnegut in his blog. :-)
